I have a pilot metro and a lamy safari.  I have had them for a while but donít use them much.  I just bought a notebook to try to write in as a journal.

With those pens you can replace the ink right? Do they last longer than cheap pens?

^^ Yeah, morgothaod. That's part of the fun - there's a ton of different ink brands and colors to try.

I've been using fountain pens since the 4th grade. I started with a no-name fountain pen I found at the base exchange on the military base where my folks were stationed - it took standard cartridges and I realized pretty quickly that I could reuse the cartridges and fill them with ink drawn from a bottle with a syringe. Now that I'm older I tend to use 1930s Sheaffer Balances and I carry a Lamy 2000 with me everywhere.

Nice reviews Davion!

  Depending on which fountain pens you buy and how good you take care of them. They can last you a lifetime. Yes there are many different inks you can use in them.

Right now, sitting in front of me on my desk is:

1. Pilot 823
2. Diplomat Classic
3. Silver Parker 75
4. Pilot Varsity - disposable.
5. Scheaffer PFM (Pen for Men).

Each has a different color ink. I use them every day.
